Re: “Zoo Brew

As the Zoo continues to take over the Greensward in historic Overton Park, not because they need parking, but as a blatant land grab so they can eventually have all the Greensward to build exhibits on and name them for donora and have frontage on Poplar. As the Zoo continues to tear down the Old Forest. As the Zoo continues to sell old and sick hooved animals to canned hunting ranches. As the Zoo continues to keep miserable elephants in inhumane conditions. By the way, what happened to that hippo you sold to an animal trader?

Re: “Memphis Zoo Names New President and CEO

Is he going to keep selling hooved animals to canned hunting ranches? Is he going to ask the Zoological Society to open its meetings to the public since the Zoo is heavily subsidized by the taxpayers? Seems like he sees our Zoo as a tourist attraction. Can we expect more of our precious, historic Greensward to be paved over, all the way to Poplar with exhibits named for affluent Memphians, so the Zoo can have a "presence" on Poplar? Animals are not entertainment. What was his role in the cruel confinement of dolphins, whales and other sea creatures at Sea World? We shall see. WE WILL BE WATCHING.

Re: “Joint Venture Formed to Spur Economic Development Announced

"Strickland said the joint venture is in line with his priority of making data-driven decisions and holding institutions accountable."
Many community activists will be crunching the "data" on all the issues the Mayor promised to improve during his election campaign, like crime, poverty, and education, and we will also be watching the statistics on police brutality, MPD's response (zero response) to CLERB recommendations, number of people surveilled and harassed by MPD, the data involving cases at Juvenile Court, minority hiring statistics, et cet., and we will be holding HIM accountable, and making our own data-driven decisions at the ballot box in 2019. Strickland has failed to measure up.

Re: “Group Urges City Council to Call Off Educational Campaign

Thank you, Maya, for exposing yet another shady thing this crooked Council has done. They want to remain in power to let developers make money from poor developments all over the city and be able to get reelected and pad their pensions. This end-around stuff of not putting things on the agenda and approving their minutes same-night will not stand the light of day. More Memphians need to attend Council meetings to witness first-hand all the shenanigans these people pull. Berlin Boyd is arrogant and rude to the citizens who attempt to speak, as are many of the other Council members.

Re: “In MPD We Trust? Surveilling Citizen Activists is Wrong

"That's not community policing. That's policing the community." Thank you, Maya Smith. And since the trial, MPD has doubled down and increased their following and surveillance of community activists, even to the point of following and detaining an activist and his attorney during the trial, busting into an activist's home and that of a relative during the trial, and sending a patrol car cruising by as the parties to the lawsuit and their friends ate lunch at a restaurant after the trial. We eagerly await a ruling by Judge McCalla.
